Driver-in-the-loop simulators are increasingly used in Motorsport and Automotive companies to enable engineers and drivers to experience a new vehicle design in a realistic environment before it is built. The use of simulators enables drivers to test a new vehicle and/or control system without having to build a prototype and to carry out those tests in complete safety and in repeatable conditions.

Using Modelica as the development language for the vehicle model within these systems enables rapid model development and the fast evaluation of vehicle concepts. This enables more vehicle concepts to be tested before committing to a prototype build. The use of physical models also ensures that geometry changes and other physical modifications to the concept can be evaluated on the simulator at an early stage.

Keywords: driving simulator; vehicle dynamics; real-time simulation
